So, I used to have a "future-dated" post at the top of my LJ. It's at the top because I set it to July 20th, 2010, a date of no real significance to me, my loved ones, nor my acquaintances. At least as far as I am aware.

The post was a private one, containing a variety of information pertinent to my life at the time, such as birthdays, links, etc.

Anyway, today, I made a post for the first time since that date passed, and for the first my time since I made that post at last 5 years ago, it no longer sits at the pole position of my journal.

It's a strange feeling, especially since looking back, I can see how my life has changed. So many of these links are meaningless to me now - I don't even know what they represent. Many no longer even work, such as this: ftp://hello:kitty@69.199.217.206:21, which was apparently an FTP site I used at one point. Why? I have no idea.

The list of birthdays is also interesting, as many of the individuals on that list I no longer have contact with, though many are still close to me.

"We Have Forgotten"
Sixpence None the Richer


Dreams, inconsistent angel things.
Horses bred with star-laced wings.
But it's so hard to make them fly, fly, fly.
These wings beat the night sky 'bove the town.
One goes up and one goes down.
And so the chariot hits the ground, bound, bound.

We have forgotten (don't try to make me fly)
How it used to be (I'll stay here, I'll be fine).
How it used to be (don't go and let me down)
How it used to be (I'm starting to like this town).

When wings beat the night sky 'bove the ground,
Will I unwillingly shoot them down
With all my petty fears and doubts, down, down?

We have forgotten (am I in love with this?)
How it used to be (my constant broken ship)
How it used to be (don't go, I'll shoot you down),
How it used to be (I'm starting to like this town)

So it's been forever since I posted on here, but I was talking to someone and it reminded me of Livejournal! So how is everyone? I see a lot of you are still posting as religiously as you were previously, so the community obviously is still alive and well.

Since my last posts... I have moved to the US (and moved within the US from CA to AZ), gotten married (maybe I mentioned this before), and started working for Sony Online Entertainment. I am happy, so that's good, and our studio just re-launched one of our games (www.poxnora.com) with a new website, UI, and even a Facebook version (apps.facebook.com/poxnora). It's a table top battle game mixed with card game elements... so like MTG meets FF Tactics type of thing.

Designing video games (and note that this isn't testing nor programming) IS pretty much a dream job, assuming you like video games. I play games as work (it's research right?), mostly our own games, but yesterday we played a few games of Dominion, for example, and even the work side is of something that interests me a great deal! It's also pretty dynamic - aside from balancing our own games from a design perspective, there are also all kinds of other stuff that the design team is responsible for which make things interesting. The other day I worked with the artists to come up with new icons for the abilities/effects that are in our game, for example.

Anyway, if I remember, I will start posting again... maybe I should bookmark this thing.

Also, yay for Team Canada winning both Hockey Golds!

There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms

There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves

There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
Springtime calls her children 'till she let's them go at last
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds

There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
But my hands remember hers, rolling 'round the shaded ferns
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned

There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
Sometimes, with the windows closed, she'll sit and think of me
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone

There were actually a lot more units, but they all look very similar anyway.

Wee... baby corn, garlic, green onions and some bacon. Yummy!

I've also since discovered you can basically stuff them with anything... crab, shrimp, tofu... all works.

Life is about questions, not answers. The trick isn't to find the answers, but to ask the right questions - and to not expect it to be answered.

Subject:Shepherds

Frank: I've seen the future where the battle between good and evil that has raged for millenia is fought to conclusion. And the struggle for our hearts and minds is decided for all time. We survive, maybe, but only by discarding the question that confuses us, "What do I want?" and asking, "What the world, what the universe wants and needs?" asking, "What does life itself expect of me?"

Jordan: Which side wins, daddy?

Frank: That's what I am saying, it's up to us.

Jordan: We are all shepherds.

Frank:Yes, honey, yes we are.

Postcards of the past
Upon them names engraved
Gifts from Aphrodite come and go
But these you can never trade

Menagerie of memories
Some claim already lost
In truth only parts are forgotten
And the remains are clearer still

Selections of stories
Retained and retold
Tradegy and comedy can both dismay
When the audience has no part

A wolf in sheep's clothing lacks patience, and will give himself away.
A wolf who believes himself to be a sheep has conviction, and is far more dangerous.
